Call it the European influence or a return to this country's early-1900s notions: Many of today's kitchens are assigning furniture duties to cabinetry. Some pieces are freestanding, but others simply appear to be, standing in as china hutches, pie safes, and buffets.
To create this look, I used Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan in the colors Paris Grey and Old White, Clear Soft Wax, and Dark Soft Wax. I began with a coat of Paris Grey over the entire thing. The Annie Sloan Pure Bristle Brush was perfect for getting into the grooves of this piece.
